  1. Our last 3 matches that have yielded points have seen us play an actual ball winning midfielder, we should again tomorrow. Lawlor Fage Pidge Jameson Clarke Ntambe Whelan Mcalmont Mcaleny Rowe Dearnley Do these play out from the back? If so like Bolton we press high. Thoughts?
  2. The midfield getting the ball to the front men is the least of our worries. It's protecting the back 4 and keeping a clean sheet that's the problem. See the goals against column for factual proof.
  3. It's the stopping of crosses and balls into the box that we struggle with. Hamer needs a rest but we don't have anyone else!!
  4. Personally not a fan of Rowe but he needs to play with Mcaleny and Dearnley. Given the comments made by Kewell when Blackwood arrived and can only assume. He's not fit.
  5. Not sure why Hamer and Fage are getting a hard time. Thought they were ok, if unspectacular.
  6. I'm a big fan of Hamer, love his commitment, aerial ability and long throw ( it's not his fault that no one wanted to put there head in where it hurts the last few seasons). I think the main areas that let him down are the 3 most important one: Stopping crosses Positioning Crossing However at 20 there's plenty of time to improve.
  7. I've no idea Mick, you're right but I'd be amazed if he isn't the top earner.
  8. Completely.. My point being though that I'd expect a player of his pedigree to coach players through games, lead and be really vocal. Get a well organised back line etc. I'd expect him to improve players around him. I guess you'll just point to those players being beyond improvement as they're shit.
  9. Accepted re the goals point. The underlying point is though that he hasn't really justified his wage.
  10. Please could you provide me with some more stats around blocks, tackles etc, cheers.
  11. I make you right and agree. However I do think the main difference between the two of them is that Clarke used to drag us over the line in games by scoring, blocking one on the line, last ditch tackle etc. I haven't really seen that from Wheater.
  12. Danny Rowe playing holding midfield?
  13. Stats are deceptive. He has got a small amount of ability that is occasionally useful at this level.
  14. What are his strengths? Serious question. I got fed up of watching him half heartedly swan round today. We need a striker that wants to get in the box!
  15. This has been a theme all season. Wheater should be the first in there as captain. He isn't a leader at all.
